L.A. Council weighs hiking minimum wage at hotels

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Workers in Los Angeles' largest hotels could earn up to $15.37 an hour under a measure to be considered by the City Council.

The Los Angeles Times says council members Nury Martinez, Curren Price andMike Bonin will introduce the proposal at Tuesday's meeting.

The ordinance would apply to 87 hotels that have 100 rooms or more.

The local hotel workers union, Unite Here, has been lining up business and political supporters for months. Hotel owners have been lobbying against the proposed law, arguing that city officials previously promised no new wage controls.

The state's minimum wage is due to reach $9 in July. But some cities have gone beyond that requirement — including San Francisco, where employers must pay at least $10.74 an hour.
